Offshore V-neck is now an FO.

I had this sweater as my UFO for May. I started it as late as April this year but then I turned to other project s and if not ready now then it would have been left to the fall.

It is knitted in Cascade 220 heather, this is the first time I knit in this yarn. Very nice knitting and the cables comes out well. The sweater is not blocked yet, I leave that for a rainy day (or later).

I like the model with the cables and the saddles that goes to the back.
There are many "at the same time" and I missed a few but decided to go ahead and improvise. I managed to get the cables row at the WS for the sleeves. AS many had commented the number of stiches for the neck was few and I added more than 50%.

I wanted a big and cozy sweater and made size 45, maybe a big too big. After making a number of fitted cardigans I felt to knit something to cuddle up in.

Offshore V-neck pullover - my UFO for May

We spent the weekend in the summer house in the Archipelago of Stockholm.

It rained some but Saturday was sunny and I got some time knitting on my Offshore V-neck pullover. This is also my UFO for May. If it's not ready this month I guess it will rest in my UFO pile to the fall. I'm know started working on the yoke so is may be possible to complete. The yarn is Cascade 220.
